Polaroid Android: Muffin's Return
Contrary to what mainstream media say, veganism is not the new trendy hype nor nutritional nonsense, but a way ahead for humanity. Besides spiritual consequences, “lesser consumption of animal products is necessary to save the world from the worst impacts of climate change” a UN reports says. (source)
In fact, in addition to the unnecessary animal suffering and health issues related to breeding and slaughtering are wastage and pollution of water resources, ocean degradation, deforestation, fossil fuel dependency, increased carbon dioxide emanations and greenhouse effect plus human starvation. However, it is not for me to convince you to make the switch but your responsibility as incarnated souls to make this choice or not. I just want to share my beliefs and the undisputed positive impact the new lifestyle has had on my physical and spiritual well-being.
A lengthy preamble to introduce a fully-vegan (using flaxseed instead of eggs) enhanced version of my homemade gluten and sugar-free recipe of cinnamon muffins posted last year (see Related articles). Definitely softer and tastier, it will keep even better and longer.
Makes 9 muffins:
- 50 g coconut flour
- 50 g rice flour
- 50 g quinoa flour
- 50 g tigernut flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp apple vinegar
- 3 tbsp ground flaxseed
- 2 tbsp ground almonds
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 6 tbsp olive oil (or melted coconut oil)
- 300 ml rice milk (or any vegetable milk)
In a large bowl, mix flours with spices and ground linseed, preferably using a whisk. Dig a hole in the middle and add baking soda plus vinegar.
Mix again then add milk and oil. Stir well until you get a thick, slightly elastic dough.
Transfer into a 9 cup muffin pan and press well to pack slightly. Bake for 35 minutes at 210°C.
NOTE: You may substitute ginger and cinnamon with 1 tsp of raw unsugared cocoa powder, add raisins, shredded nuts and flavour with rum or essential oils (25 drop orange oil) as you wish.
